Efficient High Average Power and Narrow Spectral Linewidth Operation of Ce:LiCAF Laser at 1 kHz Repetition Rate

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We report on generation of narrow spectral linewidth UV light tunable from 280 nm to 311 nm with high absolute conversion efficiency, based on the Ce:LiCAF laser pumped by fourth harmonic of diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser. Two alternative systems- power oscillator and oscillator-amplifier utilizing Ce:LiCAF - demonstrated efficiency in excess of 10% with spectral linewidth of 5 pm. Additionally, broader line (0.3 nm) power oscillator based on Ce:LiCAF has shown absolute conversion efficiency from fundamental (1064 nm) wavelength to the tunable output of more than 6%, and an absolute efficiency of 27% for conversion from the 266 nm pump.
